These are so rich and creamy!! Instead of letting the mixture refrigerate for 3 hours, left them overnight because I forgot about it. Only had an 8 oz container of Cool Whip so cut the recipe down to make 2 doz. Used my 1 in cookie scooper to form the balls and then roll in the cookie crumbs. Are very tasty, will probably make it on my holiday tray!! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag Nov 2009.
